    My experience once I finally saw the doctor was fine, but they require you to be there early for paperwork, etc. and I ended up sitting there for two hours past my appointment time with no explanation or apologies. It definitely feels like a mill, running people in and out as fast as they can once you are seen, but getting seen can take hours even with an "appointment". I find this practice of overscheduling wholly unacceptable.

    He did a hip replacement for me for a hip that was soooo end stage I should have been in a scooter, cause I could hardly walk even with the walker. Seems he did a good job for me. Took me the 6 months to really heal, but I assume that was due to some strange thing with me that I still cannot figure out despite looking thru the net and talking with others. Regardless, I had no pain afterward, and found him helpful and caring as a Surgeon. Very pleased.

    This Dr performed a shoulder reversal surgery on me and accidentally broke my arm. This left me with no movement of my thumb and index finger until I went to another MD to have it corrected. I have been left with ongoing nerve pain and severe limitations with my left arm. I will likely be on medication the rest of my life because of this. I would NEVER recommend this MD or the CORE institute.
